Collection of 20 HTML5 Video Players

A Collection of 20 HTML5 Video Players
20 Free Html5 Video Players

The <video> element is a long-awaited and probably one of the most talked about feature in HTML5.

We can easily embed videos into web pages without any plugins, using the <video> element (which is now included in latest versions of Firefox, Safari & Chrome & Opera). The major problem is that not all of the browsers support the same codecs (while IE doesn’t support any). This is where javascript comes to aid. It sits on top of the <video> tag providing better video controls and a fallback to flash for older browsers.

Here are 20 useful HTML5 video players which allow you to easily embed video into web pages and ensure backwards compatibility.
